Main Senate Corridor in use as temporary Senate Press Gallery, ca. 1950

Image: Press Gallery in Main Senate Corridor, ca. 1950
In 1949-1950 during a remodeling of its offices, the Senate Press Gallery was temporarily relocated to the Main Senate Corridor near the "Ohio" Clock. As a lark, some reporters did keep liquor hidden in the clock during this time.
